KAW POINT PARK IS THE NAME GIVEN
for the point where the Kansas and
Missouri rivers meet in Kansas City,
Kansas. The area is now part of an
urban landscape surrounded by
industry and development. Many
people who live in the area didn’t
always know the importance of the
site. That has all changed thanks to
the help of the Friends of Kaw Point
Park, Inc., a volunteer-led non-profit
organization created to fund and
construct the Lewis & Clark Historic
Park at Kaw Point and to interpret
the Lewis & Clark Expedition in
Wyandotte County, Kansas.

The Friends of Kaw Point Park have
transformed an area that was once a
trash dump into a place where people
can go for fun and entertainment.
                                                                         Kaw Point Park volunteers taking a break after a long day of work.

Tribal Legacy Project
I invite you to come along the trail in two different ways... One is the view from the keel boat
as it goes up the river as it did 200 years ago. But I also ask you to step off that keelboat and
be in the villages of the American Indian Tribes that Lewis and Clark encountered. We are
in danger, I believe, of losing some of those cultures….Let’s get together with the spirits of
Lewis and Clark, and don’t forget Sacagawea, York the slave and the others. I challenge
you to come along with us as we travel this trail...to not let this vision die once we reach the

          resources that comprise the Trail. I believe in networks and partnerships based on common missions.

          offers a unique opportunity to reach out across cultures, ecosystems, and jurisdictional lines to find

          The Lewis and Clark Trail traverses the heart of Native North America. An incredible array of diverse
          Native American societies inhabited the trans-Mississippi American West at the time of the Corps of
          Discovery Expedition, and those societies remain alive and vibrant today. As the Trail’s archeologist
          and anthropologist, I am committed to collaborating with Native American tribes, assisting them in
          the rediscovery and preservation of their own unique cultural histories.

                                 Learning the way we learn has always been a fascination for me and that fascination led me into the
                                 education field. I have taught in the outdoor classroom, teaching outdoor skills and team building,
                                 I have taught classroom science, social studies, and math; and I have taught in parks. I really have
                                 been spoiled.

                                 I get energy and satisfaction from working with volunteers. I value the skills, enthusiasm, real-life
                                 experiences, and the individual contributions they bring to the NPS. I look forward to getting out
                                 along the trail to meet the volunteers who share the stories of the journey of Lewis and Clark and
                                 keep their stories alive and flowing—like the waters traveled so long ago.

                                 Over the last six years, I have said to many friends, family, coworkers and partners of the Lewis and Clark
                                 National Historic Trail that, “I am very lucky.” There aren’t many things better than bringing neighbors
                                 together to learn about each other and appreciate each other. During the Bicentennial I worked closely with
                                 Corps II, which resulted in more than 400 individual tribal members coming to the Tent of Many Voices to
                                 share their history, culture and dreams for the future. It is rewarding for all of us to get to know each other
                                 as individuals, with very similar dreams.

          We build greatness through partnerships. The Golden Gate Bridge was not built in a single day,
          nor by a single person, but rather by the cooperative efforts of many people over time that
          brought vision to fruition.

          Ronni Whitmer, Trail Secretary
          I am fascinated by the mission we work toward as we administer this legendary historic trail. My work is
          behind the scenes as I support trail management. Yet, I am always delighted and find new energy when I
          speak to trail partners...the backbone of the trail’s existence. In fact, as you look at the clock in your office,
          know that you can usually reach me late in the day. Call me with questions or a with your need to reach
          any other staff member. I’d love to hear from you.

          I am excited about my new position. Having transferred from the Department of Defense, I see many
          similarities. Our staff is dedicated to the preservation of our heritage. As our military defends this country,
          the Lewis and Clark Trail personnel are also defenders of American history. I am proud to have been given
          the opportunity to serve alongside those who are working hard to ensure our country’s heritage remains
          intact, especially for those wanting to see, feel, and experience the beauty of America, a country we live in
          and fight for every day.

          I enjoy my career with the National Park Service. Being a Park Ranger allows me to share the stories
          of America. At Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, I get to share the stories of the Expedition. It is
          rewarding to help others learn about our past and to protect our future.
